I have never seen a doctor like him. He should should a class on proper patient care with all the other who have no heart and just don't care. He is above all in the southcost. Give this man a raise

  • My daughter has been coming here ever since she was born she is 7yo and Dr Kelly has always done a great job ! He is always there when we need him ! Thank you Dr. Kelly

  • The service the doctor provided was great. The attitude and lack of communication between the nurses and office staff was flabbergasting. If you want someone to stay in thier car and call when they arrive it's best to advise them on the phone when calling back with the appointment time. Unfortunately that was not the case and the receptionist was very abrasive, get your office staff on the same page as far as communication goes.

  • Excellent service!

  • I was seen promptly greeted in a very positive way Dr Kelly is wonderful and a very caring doctor and staff very helpful experience

  • He is the best !!

  • Dr. Kelly is a consummate physician who cares about me and oversees all things medical in life. Best doctor I ever had. I am 78.

  • We went in to have my daughters stitches removed. Dr. Kelly was wonderful at making her feel comfortable and showing/explaining her how he would do it.

  • Dr Kelly is incredibly thorough every time I see him. He knows my history and plans for future evaluations as necessary. He is sensitive to all issues I am addressing. Dr Kelly's expertise is highly valued by this almost 73 year old woman with multiple health issues that are all being managed in partner with his astute practice.

  • De Michael Kelly is truly a great physician in all aspects. He is extremely attentive, takes his time , asks follow up questions and referencing/comparing to past appointment, never rushing my appointment. Dr Kelly is 100 percent present during my appointment. He is thorough in his examination, reviewing charts/diagnosis of referred specialists and answering all questions and referring to areas of need outside his scope. I leave feeling I received the best care from a knowledgeable and experienced physician who also presents as caring of my well being and self care

  • The telehealth process has consistently worked well for me since they started to use it. I also feel the door is left open to call back anytime if I think I need an in person visit. I've enjoyed having Dr. Kelly as my primary care physician for many years.

  • Dr. Kelly is great.

  • Everything was perfect with Dr Kelly as it always is.

  • Very fortunate to have Dr. Kelly as our family physician. Everyone in the office is great.

  • It would be wonderful to have the option of getting lab work done immediately following doctor visit rather than having to go back at a later time. Overall, the experience was very good.

  • When I asked for an appointment, I got it soon.I had not waiting to get to the doctor's officeAll were helpful, courteous and efficientWhen I needed assistance to use the technology to get to the department for blood work, someone was there to help.

  • Keep up the good work !! The past 2 years have been difficult for everyone and it's comforting to know the medical providers at SouthCoast are there for their patients and willing to make an extra effort to guide and support every single one !!

  • Everything went well. The only thing I'm upset about is the policy of covid. It's been out of how many years I understand you people see it at a different light then we do. But I have a, I had a bad sinus infection which has the same symptoms as covid. I took two home test within 2 days to this visit but I still was not allowed to go into the facility. I don't particularly care for that method but yes the tell, tele-call was was okay.

  • I was in and out of my appointment very quickly covering all that needed to be covered. I also liked the fact that Dr. Kelly took my BP himself to double check numbers before making any assumptions.I was disappointed to have to make another appointment (having to take another day off from work) for lab work. Whereas, in the past, I was able to go right from my yearly check-up to the lab for blood work to be done.

  • Dr Kelly is the best! A great listener and thorough doctor.

  • Dr. Kelly is amazing, he makes my son comfortable and at ease and is attentive and answers all of our questions thoroughly. I appreciate Dr. Kelly and all of his team- shout out to Becky- who drove to a different office to get my son his vaccine. They truly go above and beyond. Thank you

  • Got in quickly , felt like the provider didn't listen to me and was some what rude actually

  • It would be more convenient if we could have bloodwork done on the same visit instead of having to book an appointment for a later date. Not Dr. Kelly's fault. Otherwise the visit was good. Dr. Kelly is a compassionate physician, and guides me on a healthy path.

  • Everything was great. no need for improvement.

  • Always pleasant, thorough and knowledgeable

  • The staff and physician make both of us feel competent, valued in our concerns and satisfied with the care.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
